Visited the memorial on a cold and snowy Saturday with my traveling companion. I was unable to visit the museum, but my friend did the following day and said it was well worth the visit.

Came here by an accident and was really pleased with this beautiful architecture. It's really tragic what happened and it's important for us to remember, so it never happens again. Recommend everyone to visit it if you are in the area.
